Hiscox Commentary for Small Business Owners
Things are starting to get really interesting. A secret contest for a $500,000 prize? A mysterious letter and a roll of money in the desk drawer? This isn’t the first time start-ups have competed for small business funding, but it might be the first time the whole thing was so mysterious. Usually the biggest difficulty is getting someone interested in your idea and you’re competing against everyone else, not just four of your friends.
Jack’s persistence is something many small business owners can identify with – he won’t hear the word No. He is a publicist which means he’ll be speaking to the media on behalf of Scarlett as he works to get her media attention. This also means that one mistake or slip of the tongue could hurt his client’s reputation. In Jack’s line of business he runs a high risk of being sued for slander or libel.
